The Green Bay Packers are just hitting their stride, but that stride may quickly turn to a limp.  While the Packers are in a bye week and working on getting healthy, one key player will not have enough time to get healthy before the team's next game.  Bryan Bulaga, who was injured Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, is expected to miss a few weeks, possibly the rest of the season. The Packers have not made an official announcement on Bulaga's status, but the outlook does not look good.  Peter Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette suggests that the extra diagnostic tests that Bulaga is undergoing indicates an injury severe enough to keep him out for a while.  The offensive lineman will likekly have his hole plugged by playing T.J. Lang at right tackle and Evan Dietrich-Smith at left guard says Dougherty. Bulaga is in his third NFL season and just 23 years old.  Already, though, he has won a Super Bowl and been part of a team that went 15-1 in the regular season.  He knows about pressure.  Now, the Packers, specifically Aaron Rodgers, will feel the pressure without Bulaga on the field.  The first rounder in 2010 has done a good job of protecting Rodgers, but now the team will have to focus on getting the job without him. Green Bay is 6-3 now on the season.  They had to win four straight games to get there, but they are definitely hot.  An injury like this could derail a team, but the Packers are focusing on making sure that doesn't happen.  They have this week and next week to prepare for their game against the Detroit Lions on November 18th without Bulaga.
